WHAT IS GRAFFITI?
Graffiti is defined as any writing, word, symbol, figure, design or other inscribed material written, sprayed, painted or otherwise applied to any exterior surface of a building, wall, fence, tree, sidewalk, curb, or other permanently fixed object without the authority or consent of the property owner.

WHAT IS GANG GRAFFITI?
Gang Graffiti is applied by members of gangs to advertise their gang, to mark their territory, to challenge competing gangs and to communicate messages of camaraderie, rivalry and death. Gang graffiti is often written with some letters upside down or backwards, and frequently includes the names of gangs.

PROBLEMS GRAFFITI CREATES
Graffiti is vandalism. Graffiti detracts from the community, and lowers property values. When a neighborhood is marked with graffiti, the entire area and its residents become vulnerable.
